lyrics

The spinning figurine
so beautifully seen
with one leg wrapped around
the other in a pirouette
She spins on an axis
she wins all the compliments
and she spins around
back and forth
and slowly back again

Spinning, spinning, spinning figurine
Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing queen

Her face is a picture of
melancholy beauty
Eyes cast down
and perfect porcelain skin
Her beauty does not bring her happiness
nor does the love from others that she
finds herself to possess
because she could not love herself any less

Spinning, spinning, spinning figurine
Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing queen
